Sono ansiosa di saper

E ad uno sposo si vivace e geloso!
And against such a quick and jealous husband!
Ma che mal c'è?
But what harm is there in it?
Cangiando i miei vestiti con quelli
To change my clothes with
E suoi co'miei
And hers with mine
al favor della notte.
Under cover of night.
Oh, cielo! a qual umil stato fatale
Oh, Heaven! What a fatal comedown

Che dopo avermi con un misto inaudito
Who, after he had me, [gave me] an unheard-of mixture
